York County Beekeepers Association

January Pop-Up Zoom

A handful of beekeepers “met” on Zoom and had a social hour comparing notes, discussing their bees’ feeding habits this winter, and -as always- talking about varroa treatments and timetables.

The take-aways:

  • Some hives are voraciously consuming their candyboards while other bees are content to hang out lower in the hive
  • April 28th is the target date for seeing the first dandelions
  • Hive loss is a risk right through April and even into May
  • Varroa treatment is a constant.
